Standard rate different for each project (without cost rate A-B-C-D-E workaround) -> Capacity planning impact RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I would like to see a different resource standard rate by project. I'm well aware of using the cost rate table (A-B-C-D-E) as a workaround but it's not working for me as I will have more than 5 rates at the same time. A workaround I found  is to set as many resources as project. I will only set the same default Assignement owner in the resource center so the timesheet or task actual updates will be effortless for my resources.

    Drawback : I do have now too many resources in my capacity planning and cannot figure out a way to group them.

    Any suggestions ?

  • Hi Florian,

    A solution would be to add a resource custom field to group your different "dummy" resources together, so you can perform your capacity planning along this group. Note that using the assignment owner might also work.

    But before that, I might ask the business need to have so many rates.

    Hope this helps,
